A film that cannot be unified in form and content

Ahem, I originally wanted to watch this alternative sci-fi, but when I saw the large-scale performance of the goddess, I couldn't calm down. It is estimated that what the film wants to express is insignificant in front of many people... I will try my best to calm down. , and after thinking about it, I found that this film is the director's tribute to Kubrick. Unfortunately, the form has been learned, but it has not been unified with the content. Maybe it is to tell a story of searching for "humanity", but the exhausted murder Although the scene progresses in form, it doesn't make me feel the progress of content. In the end, the lumberjack saw that the aliens could come back and get gasoline to burn? It's not very reasonable~ But the sound effects of this film are worth mentioning. The sharp and strange noises well set off the invisible fear of killing people.
